Can't help you with the aspen, but have a question for you: What is the thread size on the bottom of the handle? Do you buy a metal fitting that's already threaded, and then carve the wood and attach?

Have you had any luck with finding what you are looking for? I think I may have an aspen log left over that's about 14" tall. If you'd like, I could send you a pic and let you decide. I can rip it down into 2" square pieces if you'd like as well. Let me know!
